I read a few years ago that Kari Sigerson + Miranda Morrison went to FIT,
so they probably have an accessory design division. Their designs are
amazing...perfect form and structure. Good luck to you...I'm a vegetarian
and would LOVE to have better choices for footwear!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I just rechecked the parsons site and found shoe design, but it seems to be only one course. Anyways, I'll look into FIT more too.

I would think Italy would be the place to go for footwear.

Yeah I applied for fashion design. It was really easy for me to get in because well I was doing fashion design at another school that is pretty good (best in the westcoast in my opinion). I don't think parsons in general is hard to get into, like most art school nowadays have become really a business, but you gotta take the good with the bad. I think its a little harder though to transfer into, since you need to provide a transfer portfolio so you can waver courses, other than that I don't think you should have a real problem getting in.

They took about a little less than a two weeks after I sent my portfolio and transcripts to reply. The head of the fashion department at my old school said my portfolio was extremely strong so I guess that's why they replied fairly fast, at least I hope! lol

I graduated from Parsons (when I started I took some classes at FIT) attended classes at Cercal and London College of Fashion Cordwainers. Parsons was not to much accessories, but fashion. In fact they only had one class of shoe design when I attended, and I think it is still this way. I much perferred Cercal and LCFC- you can't go wrong with either of these schools, if shoes are truly your passion. Their classes are on shoes (you can learn handbags from the best here too), which is all I wanted. Italy is unsurpassed in the craft of the shoe, plus you can find shoemakers who still work from a shop, who are willing to pass on their knowledge and London is not that far behind, with less of the passing on, but the craft is still be taught well. I loved all my education and continue to learn.

thanks for the info. i studied industrial design, and took a class in shoe design, but i was more interested in the branding/ strategy aspect! if you care to post any of your sketch models or final designs i'd appreciate! also in another thread several people voiced interest in seeing examples of the process stage.

You're welcomed. I've been having a website built for my company for a few months now, it's so hard to decide, but I plan to show sketches by myself and my partner. We have been thinking to show the entire process, even us in the factories jaja. So we can justify the prices.

No as soon as it's up I plan to post and show.
